Our permanent exhibitions, We Who Survived: A Portrait Gallery and Young Voices from the Holocaust, are on view in our museum and open to the public. As well, we present a thematic temporary exhibitions each fall and spring.
Situated along the Herman Berenblum Promenade is We Who Survived, a photographic tribute to the members of the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre survivor speakers' bureau. Accompanying each contemporary portrait by photographer Leib Kopman is an autobiographical sketch reflecting on a life lived before, during and after the Holocaust. Together they affirm the importance of bearing witness and passing the torch of remembrance. Sharing their personal stories of survival, grief, and ultimately renewal with thousands of students and members of the public, these remarkable individuals have informed and inspired generations.
The portrait gallery is open year round.
Our museum exhibit, Young Voices from the Holocaust, looks at Jewish youth, all of whom were under 19 years of age, during the period from 1933 to 1945.
It is divided into ten themes, which trace young Jews’ diverse experiences in the years leading up to, during and just after the Holocaust. The display highlights the stories of local survivor speakers from the Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre. Along with rare archival photographs, documents, artefacts and artwork, their haunting words offer insight into their unimaginable experiences, giving a voice to every young victim of the Holocaust, both those who were murdered and those, who against tremendous odds, survived and went on to live meaningful and fruitful lives.
Don't miss these temporary exhibitions running during HEW 2018.
Literature can be a powerful tool for young learners to discover the history of the Holocaust. Divided into five zones relating to the works of five authors, this exhibition offers visitors an entry point to understand the main characters’ histories, as well as key elements of the author’s life and an artefact connected to the story. Specifically developed for families and children eight to ten years of age and older with the maturity to deal with difficult subject matter. A selection of children’s literature will be available in the reading zone suitable for ages five and above. English and French.
